I saw that the True Colors tour is coming to our area in June, and I had to share the lineup with you:
Artists scheduled to appear: Cyndi Lauper, Erasure, Debbie Harry, The Dresden Dolls, The Gossip, and special guest Rufus Wainwright. Hosted by Margaret Cho.
I actually like some of what I’ve heard from The Dresden Dolls and The Gossip (“Standing in the Way of Control” was a good one), but sometimes lineups like this just crack me up. “Hosted by Margaret Cho?” How exactly does one host a concert?
Of course, this is coming from a guy who is far more likely to see a Ralph’s World or Dan Zanes show these days. But I did just download the new Arcade Fire from eMusic, along with some classic jazz from Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk (thanks BG). Well, those and Dan Zanes. And maybe Justin Roberts. But also Barenaked Ladies and Ray Charles! Anyone?
